BREAKING NEWS: At its annual Nitrogen Frozen Pumpkin
Toss, the OUSPS proves that NFP's can't fly; but they sure
can fall with style!
Next semester, Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy (James P. Shaffer) will be teaching a course in Optical Physics (4243/5223).
This course will be offered on TU and TH from 2:00-3:15 pm. The course will cover the basics of geometric optics, physical optics (interference and diffraction), and some quantum and nonlinear optics.
The book that he will use is Saleh and Teich, "Fundamentals of Photonics". This course will be beneficial to anyone who uses optics in their research. It is only offered every other year, though; so, if you are interested, we encourage you to enroll next semester.
Pumpkin tossing is fun! Especially when the pumpkin is frozen
solid in Liquid Nitrogen!
